Here’s a prime candidate for 2017’s summer anthem. Toro y Moi just shared a video for “Girl Like You,” full of summer vibes and available on his forthcoming album Boo Boo.
The Berkeley-based creator of the musical project Toro y Moi has only shifted slightly from his chillwave roots into the autotuned dream-pop heard in “Girl Like You,” and the artist has also officially changed his name from Chaz Bundick to Chaz Bear.
He says that Boo Boo was influenced by Travis Scott, Daft Punk, Frank Ocean, and Oneohtrix Point Never.
I recognized that the common thread between these artists was their attention to a feeling of space, or lack thereof.
